In addition to this prototype Jaguar has re-taught the I-PACE. The pure electric high performance SUV that will start selling next year and what will be its spearhead in the new generation of environmentally sustainable cars.
In addition, Jaguar has also presented the FUTURE-TYPE which provides a vision of how vehicles will be from 2040 onwards. This fully autonomous virtual concept explores mobility in the connected world of tomorrow, in which vehicles can be shared, instead to have a single owner.
The FUTURE-TYPE interface will allow you to access your different digital spheres of work, family or leisure separately, selecting what you need, and discarding what you do not.
At its core is Sayer, the smart steering wheel that will revolutionize his way of life. Called in honor of Malcolm Sayer, designer of the E-Type, this steering wheel works not only inside the car, but remains active in your home and becomes a faithful companion.
Sayer is the first voice activation and artificial intelligence flyer that has the ability to perform hundreds of tasks. Its advanced voice recognition software will allow you to answer your questions, connect you to the news, organize your travels and select your form of entertainment.
Sayer, the smart steering wheel
Sayer, for example, knows what’s in his refrigerator, and can even deal with the purchase or order a pizza. With it will never run out of milk ever again … It will become your favorite device. It is not just the “key” of your vehicle, but a membership card of a service club. It is a club that offers exclusive ownership or the option of sharing the vehicle with other people in the community.
For our customers, driving is much more than going from point A to point B. It is about enjoying life fully. You can always experience the pure thrill of driving with the option of taking the wheel. However, this is an unprecedented flyer.
